Magny-Cours (France), 30 June 2018 – The third round of the International of France will take place this weekend at the Nevers Magny-Cours circuit. It’s organized by the Nevers Moto Club and the Nièvre, in collaboration with the Nevers Magny-Cours circuit. The event takes place in the late afternoon and evening, together with the Superbike races who are also held this weekend. Spectators can enjoy two events this weekend on two tracks of the Nevers Magny-Cours circuit.
200 pilots are entered for this event divided in 7 categories: International of France, Prestige S1, S2, Challenger, S3, S3 Women, S4. Yesterday was dedicated to the free practices and time practices for all categories.
Despite his recent injury sustained in Poland, Thomas Chareyre (TM, Team TC4) proved he hasn’t lost anything in speed, as he took the pole position of the International of France. Chareyre beat Laurent Fath (KTM, MTR team) by just 3 hundredths of a second, while Marc-Reiner Schmidt (Honda, Team L30 Racing) finished 3rd. Tomorrow’s races therefore promise very good fights.
